Cool EDGE and Wifi browsing is slow - What to do?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Everyone,

Been using my 8220 for about a week now, and I must say, the more I use it, the more I'm liking it. I switched over from an 8300, mainly because my old data plan was waaaay to expensive.

I didn't buy this phone for browsing, so its not a big deal, but when I go to the Vancouver craigslist home page, I just timed it and it takes 25 seconds!

That seems a bit long, and I notice the status bar bouncing back and forth between "Loading" and "Requesting" for 10-15 seconds before it finally starts loading the 19K page.

I've read bits and pieces of some reviews indicating that browsing is slow, so I just wanted to see if this was normal, or there was a setting or update I should apply.

I just checked the "Application" section, and I'm on 4.6. Not sure if thats the right place to check, but any input would be great.

Thanks guys.
